It didn’t take long for President Trump’s tweet cheering Steve Bannon’s return to Breitbart News to spur reaction from those following him on Twitter, amusing many by the irony of his words.

“Of all the things the President of the United States can be thinking about and publicly commenting on. Steve Bannon and Breitbart?” wrote one Twitter user.

The commotion began Saturday morning after the POTUS tweeted he believes Bannon will be a “tough and smart new voice” at the far-right news site, and said that “Fake News needs the competition!”

That’s all Twitter needed to hear to tear into the POTUS.
